    Dynamic grooming deals with requests for wavelength allocation based on a dynamic pattern of arrivals in contrast to the situation of static grooming in which the pattern of arrivals must be previously known. Solutions for dynamic grooming typically involve the construction of an auxiliary graph for deciding on the routing and wavelength assignment. An auxiliary graph can represent the network par...

    All-optical networks, in which the electrical regeneration bottlenecks are removed, are seen as the next-generation backbone networks. Any link failure in these high-speed environments, if not dealt with promptly, is catastrophic and can cause the loss of gigabits of data. While techniques to improve the survivability of optical networks are now well-established, such is not the case with all-opti... View full abstract»

  • Three-Domain Burst Scheduling in Optically Burst-Switched WDM Networks

    This paper proposes three-domain (3-D) burst scheduling in optically burst-switched WDM networks. This scheme completely eliminates contention at intermediate core nodes by combining contention avoidance schemes in the space, wavelength, and time domains. In the space and wavelength domains, the proposed scheme constructs multiple fixed, tree-shaped routes for burst transmission called λ-tree... View full abstract»

    A novel family of codes for modified spectral-amplitude-coding optical code division multiple access (SAC-OCDMA) is introduced. The proposed codes exist for more processing gains than the previously reported codes do. In the network using these codes, the number of users can be extended without any essential changes in the previous transmitters. In this study, we propose a construction method for ...

  • Mean Field Calculation for Optical Grid Dimensioning

    For traditional optical network dimensioning, a plethora of algorithms exists to design the amount of network resources required to accommodate a given amount of traffic, expressed as a (source, destination)-based traffic matrix. In optical Grid dimensioning, however, the anycast principle applies: Grid users do not really care where exactly their tasks (Grid jobs) end up being executed. Thus, the... View full abstract»

  • Adaptive Reliable Multipath Provisioning in Survivable WDM Mesh Networks

    We investigate the problem of adaptive reliable multipath provisioning in next-generation backbone mesh networks employing optical wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) and channelization techniques such as synchronous optical network/synchronous digital hierarchy (SONET/SDH) and supporting virtual concatenation (VCAT). VCAT enables multipath provisioning, but also introduces differential delay a... View full abstract»

  • Decision Threshold Control Method for the Optical Receiver of a WDM-PON

    We demonstrate an improvement of optical receiver performance for an optical signal with beat noises. The decision threshold level is adjusted automatically according to the detected average optical power. This simple method improves optical receiver performance under a wide range of input signal conditions, e.g., beat noise level and extinction ratio. Thus this proposed method is useful to optica...

Aims & Scope

The scope of the Journal includes advances in the state-of-the-art of optical networking science, technology, and engineering. Both theoretical contributions (including new techniques, concepts, analyses, and economic studies) and practical contributions (including optical networking experiments, prototypes, and new applications) are encouraged. Subareas of interest include the architecture and design of optical networks, optical network survivability and security, software-defined optical networking, elastic optical networks, data and control plane advances, network management related innovation, and optical access networks.  Enabling technologies and their applications are suitable topics only if the results are shown to directly impact optical networking beyond simple point-to-point networks.
